Testimonial April 2018: An instrument is an instrument and a course is a course. But it’s the musician or composer that breathes life into that musical instrument or musical score. In addition to that they may also bring their years of experience and excellence to deliver an outstanding performance. I commend you for demonstrating that Spirit of Greatness. Your delivery was accurate, well timed, engaging, humorous, relaxed, and passionate. I struggled to pick out faults. I just want to say from this participant…..”Thank you”. I wish you every success with your future courses and endeavours.
